Outrageous NYT Op-Ed: Can My Children Be Friends With White People?
In a New York Times op-ed, an African American college professor wondered if his children "can truly be friends with white people."
Ekow N. Yankah, a professor at Yeshiva University’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, said he will be raising his sons to be wary of friendships with white people.
"Donald Trump’s election has made it clear that I will teach my boys the lesson generations old, one that I for the most part nearly escaped. I will teach them to be cautious, I will teach them suspicion, and I will teach them distrust," Yankah wrote. "Much sooner than I thought I would, I will have to discuss with my boys whether they can truly be friends with white people."
"In the coming years, when my boys ask again their questions about who can be their best friend, I pray for a more hopeful answer," he concluded.
On "Fox & Friends," Lawrence Jones said Yankah is teaching his children a dangerous lesson.
"He's literally teaching his [children] to be racist, be prejudiced, to judge people by their skin color, not the content of the character," Jones said.
He argued that college professors all across the country feel this way, and that's what many of them are teaching their students.
"Parents should be aware," Jones said. "I caution parents: Be careful where you're sending your kids to school. You're essentially funding this movement."
He added that this is nothing new, but Democrats and progressives are increasingly trending toward this type of identity politics.
